SHARE San Francisco

DETROIT, Jan. 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation
(Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced that Jim
Liebert, Subject Matter Expert for Compuware, will present "Compuware
Workbench: What's New in Mainframe Application Development" at SHARE in
Anaheim, Calif. The Compuware Workbench, a new, modern, intuitive graphical
interface, helps companies "future proof" mainframe development by providing a
point-and-click development environment perfect for new and inexperienced
mainframe application developers.

Date of Presentation: Thursday, February 7, 2013
Time:                 11 a.m. Pacific Standard Time
Speaker:              Jim Liebert, Subject Matter Expert, Compuware
                       Workbench
Where:                SHARE, Hilton San Francisco Union Square, San Francisco

Why It's Important to Attend

With as much as 40 percent of the world's mainframe programmers set to retire
in the not-too-distant future, companies are scrambling to staff up or risk
expensive application outages and other problems. New graduates, however, are
turned off by complex and antiquated mainframe development environments,
opting instead for positions that offer the opportunity to work on less
difficult and more exciting technologies like cloud. What can companies do to
attract the best and brightest into their mainframe application development
ranks? They can provide modernized development tools that enable new mainframe
developers to be productive.

During the session, Liebert will discuss important new enhancements to the
Compuware Workbench that include faster and more efficient file and data
management capabilities -- including the ability to edit complex IMS databases
-- as well as more robust debugging functionality, all designed to
significantly boost developer productivity. The session will feature a live
demo of the Compuware Workbench.
